This publication reports on work done by the MARS project of IRSA, integrating GIS and remote sensing for agricultural statistics applications. It illustrates problems to be faced when using these techniques. Working in an ArcInfo/Erdas environment, a stratification map of an inventory region was created using Landsat TM digital data as the main source of information with cartographic support. This map was the base for an area frame sampling to be used in a ground survey for regional agricultural statistics.
